Add the Brussels Sprouts (14 ounce) to a large mixing bowl and cook in the Panasonic Microwave Oven until soft, about 3 minutes.
Add Garlic (5 clove), Butter (1 tablespoon), Salt and Pepper (to taste). Mix until the butter melts. Add Olive Oil (4 tablespoon) and mix well. Set aside. You can let the brussels sprouts marinate up to 1 hour but it is not necessary.
Place Bacon (7 slice) in a high-sided pan over medium heat. Cook until the bacon starts to crisp, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add brussels sprouts to the pan and let them cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add Dried Cranberries (1/3 cup), cook for 2 minutes, stirring regularly. Turn off the heat and transfer everything to a colander to drain. Serve with Shredded Parmesan Cheese (to taste). Enjoy! Cooking results may vary depending on microwave oven used.
